Nine Mile River - Meeting!


#1

Saw this posted at the NMR trail head. Not sure who organized it.

Meeting: Monday Nov 6th. 7PM at the Community Centre.

I haven’t even tried to ride this trail over the summer due to the condition of the bridges. Hope to see some folks from the MTB community there!


#2

Lots of mud holes And wooden bridges needs to be repaired or maintained.
Overall, really need a serious makeover.


#3

I wonder if this is @JonnyFever 's work. He posted a thread earlier this year about doing sometrail work there.

#4

I’ll see if I can make it, but would like to see some from the new MTB Halifax association in attendance.


#5

Is it in HRM?


#6

Nope


#7

I have another meeting that night so can’t attend, but support work being done in the woods!


#8

It isn’t? Huh, I thought Enfield and Elmsdale were still located within HRM.


#9

They are. But Nine Mile is north of Enfield, which is right on the line.


#10

the shubie river is the line. HRM by the bigstop, a lot of east hants is like this.


#11

Hey @JonnyFever, we were wondering if this is a meeting you are holding?


#12

nope…however i have addressed and brought this up with locals and municipality as a safety hazard issue. possible it actually worked.


#13

Well, I suspect it did. Nice work. Lets hope something comes of this.

Such a great place.


#14

Going to try to make this. There was mention in another thread back in August of wood being ordered for bridge repairs then nothing… was curious what was going on.


#15

@JonnyFever - did you ever get in there to do any work in there this summer? I did take a day and try to do some drainage work. I meant to get back to do a bit more, but too many other things and other trail builds going on.


#16

Elmsdale is in Hants. Respect, yo.


#17

That HRM/Hants County line has caused me some grief as well… the Cob is in Enfield, 95% of which is in Hants but that little section where the Cob is, is in HRM… tried to get funding from the East Hants Municipality but you can guess the answer I got.


#18

Interesting. Is the land sanctioned? Could a usage agreement be struck?


#19

Just found out I can’t make this meeting. Is anyone here going?


#20

Hoping to, but still unsure at this point.
